“There’s so much opportunity in this sector... literally millions of possibilities with such a diversified plant. You can’t hold it back. Americans are waking up. I like to say, ‘we’ve won the war, now we’re just negotiating the terms of surrender’ because it’s only a matter of time until industrial hemp is legalized across the United States. And Hemp, Inc. is front row and center with our decortication plant in North Carolina ready to process raw hemp when it becomes legal there,” said Perlowin.
Anndrea Hermann, President of Hemp Industries Association (theHIA.org), the other featured guest speaker on “Up Close with Chris Tinney” said, “We’ve only scratched the surface” of the endless ways hemp can be used. “The industrial hemp crop is very diversified.” Hermann’s organization, Hemp Industries Association, seeks to “educate the public about the exceptional attributes of hemp products; facilitate the exchange of information and technology between hemp agriculturists, processors, manufacturers, distributors and retailers; maintain and defend the integrity of hemp products; and, advocate and support socially responsible and environmentally sound business practices.”

Henry Hemp, another outspoken public figure in the industrial hemp sector is also helping to educate the public on the benefits of hemp.

Advocates say it’s a relentless pursuit to educate Americans on the difference between marijuana and hemp. Hemp often has a low THC content, producing no psychoactive results and can be used to produce a variety of products such as hemp oil, hemp seed, hemp hearts, and hemp protein are all considered “Superfoods” because of their incredibly high nutrient value and nutritional content. Hemp can also be used to make durable products ranging from clothing and textiles to building materials such as hempcrete.
The Hempsters, the like-minded family who have been devoted to the wondrous benefits of the hemp plant will also be exhibiting at the New Earth Expo in San Diego, this Sunday. The New Earth Events’ Expo will show the film “Hempsters: Plant the Seed,” starring Woody Harrelson, Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, and a host of farmers, politicians, and businessmen on a quest for the truth on a plant outcast by society decades ago.
The expo is expected to draw hundreds of vendors and attendees and is also set to feature Hemp, Inc.’s “The HempZone” as part of Hemp, Inc.’s ongoing market penetration strategy. The interactive HempZone will educate investors and empower entrepreneurs while showcasing products.
